The uncredited anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD is absolutely stunning, with a rich quality that enhances the concert footage and will surely delight any fan! Image are sharp and detailed, though the filtered lights sometimes create a soft quality. Colors are rich and vibrant, with deep, pure blacks. There are no distractions for a beautiful, smooth picture.
The Dolby(r) Digital 5.1-channel soundtrack is loud and aggressive, but also engaging and downright spacious. The listening space is fully energized to capture the excitement and the intensity of this emotionally-charged concert performance. The recording quality is remarkable and although very prominent in loudness, shouldn't be fatiguing to hear as long as the volume setting is below film reference level. Deep bass is rather prominent throughout, with ample .1 LFE engagement. A must for Eurythmics fans!
I am an older guy who had not bought any A/V equipment for the last 14 years. I was really out of the loop as to what was happening. Did not even own a DVD player until now. This summer, my wife and I decided to build a small home theatre in our basement. Widescreen Review has been an invaluable research partner. The room was completed in mid September and now Widescreen Review can really show its stuff. The extensive DVD reviews are the final word for us when picking movies to watch. The news and equipment reviews keep us current, as we start down the never-ending path of upgrade-itis. Thanks for a great magazine.
